Primary Cilia Regulate Hematopoietic Stem Cell Specification in Zebrafish[Apr 25, 2019]

Researchers in Hematopoietic and Cardiovascular Development Group led by Prof. LIU Feng from Institute of Zoology, in collaboration with researchers from National Center of Biomedical Analysis, have identified that a centrosome protein FSD1 anchors microtubule (MT) asters. FSD1 knockdown causes defective ciliogenesis and affects embryonic development in vertebrates.

Novel Niobium Oxyiodate Sulfate Designed as Potential Nonlinear Optical Crystal[Apr 23, 2019]

A research group led by Prof. WU Xintao from Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter designed and synthesized a novel niobium oxyiodate sulfate as potential nonlinear optic crystal. This study solved the problem that sulfates are soluble in water and deliquescent easily.
